NSB denies collaborating with telecommunications company

Taipei, Sept. 8 (CNA) The National Security Bureau (NSB) rebutted Friday a local online media report that it is collaborating with a local telecommunications company to foster a civilian cyber security force.

In a press release, the NSB denied claims made in a report by Storm Media that it was recruiting civilian cyber talent by establishing an incubator in conjunction with Chunghwa Telecom (CHT).

According to the report, the NSB cannot afford to hire top-notch cyber experts, so is instead looking to contract out this work to the private sector.

Storm Media goes on to claim that this NSB-CHT incubator will be launched early next year and will serve as a talent base for the government's cyber security operations.

The NSB stated that there is no truth to the report.
